Circulation: Library Equipment

Loaner Laptops

Loaner laptops are available for one-month checkout! Students, staff, or faculty interested in borrowing a computer can fill out the laptop agreement form below and email it to or drop a printed copy off at the library front desk.

After the form is completed and a librarian contacts you, a laptop will be prepared and checked out to your account. A librarian can hand it to you in person, or it can be made available for pickup at the library front desk under your name (full instructions for pickup will be sent via email to your school Outlook account). For security purposes, laptop pickup will require a TLU student ID or any form of state/federal photo ID. 

These laptops check out for a period of 30 days at a time with renewals possible pending availability during the spring and fall semesters. For the full details and terms/conditions of the library's new loaner PC program, please see the attached form. If you have any questions, contact us via 830-372-8100 or!
